IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS
The story of Jesus is a simple one. It is also the greatest story ever told. Nothing has had as great of an impact on our world. The exciting part is that this isn’t just the story of Jesus, this is the story of us all.
The way Jesus lived His life while He was on the earth challenged people. Much like today, success was often determined by where people came from or what they did for a living. The politicians and religous leaders assumed that when the Messiah (Jesus) came, He would come from a prominant family. They thought He would look, talk, and think just like them. They literally could not believe it when, instead, Jesus came from the 99%.
He was brought into this world by a woman who wasn’t married when she became pregnant, and He associated with the poor, the sick, the prostitutes and thieves. Not only did He spend time with these people, He called them His friends and defended them against the religious leaders.
Jesus wasn’t just a friend of the lesser, He gave His life for them when He died on the cross for their sins. But Jesus’ story wasn’t finished at the cross. Three days later He rose from the dead and proved that He was the Son of God.
Jesus’ sacrifice wasn’t just for the people of His time, it was for all of humanity. We don’t have to base our lives off of the good things we do, instead, we focus on Jesus, and building a relationship with Him. Jesus has a passion for people from all walks of life, from the poorest of poor, to the richest of rich.
It is this same passion for people that inspires countless believers around the world to give their lives to Jesus. He is God, and He is worthy of it all.
THIS IS FOR EVERYONE
Good deeds have never saved anyone. And contrary to popular belief, Christians aren’t “holier than thou.” We’re all humans with the same needs for love and acceptance. We’ve found both through Jesus, and we want to help others also.
God chose people—specifically a community of people called the Church—to carry out His mission on Earth. That means the local church is meant to be God’s direct expression of love and acceptance to the world, and anyone who considers themselves a Christian should be an active part of the church.
We believe in the plenary-verbal inspiration of the accepted canon of the Scriptures as originally given and that they are infallibly and uniquely authoritative and free from error of any sort in all matters with which they deal, including scientific and historical as well as moral and theological.
We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as ONE God existing in THREE persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible.
We believe in the healing of the body by Divine Power, or Divine healing in its varied aspects as practiced in the Early Church.
SALVATION BY GRACE
We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins.
We believe Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples.
